Lightweight hyperspectral imagers bring sophisticated imaging capability to drones

February 28th, 2018
In a new study, researchers used 3-D printing and low-cost parts to create an inexpensive hyperspectral imager that is light enough to use onboard drones. They offer a recipe for creating these imagers, which could make the traditionally expensive analytical technique more widely accessible.
